Janet Jackson - "All For You"
Reached No. 1: April 14, 2000 Weeks at No. 1: Seven
For a time in the 2000s, Janet Jackson really knocked out classic after classic. If you were too young to really understand why Janet Jackson was such a big deal, then this song is for you. "All For You" really solidified her place as pop royalty.
The intro is a perfect wash of layered, high-pitched vocals that wouldn’t sound out of place on a SoundCloud stream in 2015. Then it suddenly cuts to a perfectly danceable disco sample and one of the catchiest choruses Janet ever wrote. If the video doesn’t make you want to turn every late night subway trip with your friends into choreographed gold, then you probably need new friends.
